Vital Blackburn's most recent Poll asked you "With a rocky defence who would you like to see given a chance in Central Defence?" Stephane Henchoz was your man!
Once Stephane Henchoz is fully match fit the majority would prefer to see the man who recently returned to Rovers in the team, he would pull in 51% of the votes ahead of the talented, yet inexperienced (although if he doesn't play he'll not gain experience, so an awkward scenario) youth product Eddie Nolan with 24%.
Aaron Mokoena, probably more accustomed, and arguably better suited to a defensive holding role would be the choice for 12%, with former captain Andy Todd being favoured for a recall by 9%. The totally out of favour Dominic Matteo collected 4% of the final vote.
Sadly, another youngster, Andy Taylor, although again highly talented failed to gain any of the votes at all. His 0% is probably more as a reflection of the fact that he is more familiar with a full-back role as opposed to one in the heart of the defence, although he can play there. If needed, I'd have no qualms with him performing as a full-back on either flank.
One clean sheet doesn't make a defence water tight, so people shouldn't get carried away off the back of the Middlesbrough game, Rovers were still carved open several times and but for better finishing, and on another day they would have conceded so the defence is still a worry until The Admiral returns from the looks of things, but maybe Henchoz could tighten it up?
So in summary
Andy Todd - 9%
Aaron Mokoena - 12%
Dominic Matteo - 4%
Stephane Henchoz (when match fit) - 51%
Andy Taylor (used mostly as a full-back) - 0%
Eddie Nolan - 24%
The current poll, with Stephane Henchoz being voted into the side is asking, "You voted Henchoz should come in, but who should he be paired with?"
Vote quick on this poll as it will only run until late Monday night, early Tuesday morning at the latest.
As for what you think, cast your vote, and why not have your say on the latest polls findings...
